  • Excellent place for camping...we camped overnight at 'Osprey's nest'... very nice camping spot.. very close to water.. restrooms were well lit, clean, safe.. Next day we went swimming at Holly point which was short drive from camp site.. very nicely developed beach area, great place to picnic... loved overall experience of camping at this site..
  • I really enjoyed the hike near the Rolling Creek entrance. It is a little hilly near the start, but overall not too bad. There are a lot of tree roots so be careful! The parking lot is pretty small and fills up quick, so make sure to get there early.
